L’opera d’arte sperimentale di ELER è caratterizzata da un’accentuata drammaticità ed espressività, che avvince e disorienta l’osservatore sul piano emotivo e razionale.
L’impulso creativo di ELER è un tributo alla cultura punk, dark-gothic e new wave degli anni ’80, che trova la sua essenziale fonte di ispirazione in gruppi musicali come Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy, Crass, Conflict, Christian Death.
The name ELER is inspired by the initials of this artist [LR]. Born in 1973, ELER grew up with a strong passion for sciences applied to complex systems, such as ecosystems and landscapes. After earning his PhD between Italy and Canada, he moved to England for a research period at the University of Cambridge and subsequently to China, the United States and Japan before returning to Italy where he acquired the title of University Professor. For over 20 years, he has been collaborating with prestigious international research centers in the field of satellite imagery analysis and in defining models for assessing environmental indicators of sustainability. He is the author of more than 150 scientific publications and two books distributed worldwide. ELER’s art is inspired by the scientific world and international work experiences, becoming an essential tool of knowledge and transposition of contemporary reality from the analog to the strictly digital format. This cognitive and experimental dimension is accompanied by ELER’s interest in musical culture and vinyls linked to punk, dark-gothic, new wave, and psychedelic sounds (Bauhaus, Joy Division, The Sisters of Mercy, Christian Death, Minor Threat, Tool, Kyuss) and, more recently, post-punk, post-rock, darkwave, and shoegaze genres (The Underground Youth, Slowdive, Soft Kill, Protomartyr, True Widow, Mogwai).
